I was just curious. My boyfriend is at a camp and there have been so many problems there. They are treated so unfairly and it's very aggravating. He wants me to send a letter to the warden telling him all the problems that go on there. Basically a complaint letter. A friend of mine told me to do it anonymously. Has anyone ever written a letter to the warden? Was it anonymous? Not sure what to do. Just wondering.
You have every reason to be paranoid. Most of the time the Warden knows whats going on. They just choose to turn the other check. Also, the don't like being told from family members how to run there prison. So, to speak. I have watch the Warden where I was at . Take it out on the inmate many times. Because there family called. My mom called once. And the Warden told here she was wasting here time and her money. That I belong to the State of Alabama.
So, if you do choose to write don't mention any names.
(This is just my two cents worth.) Maybe the Warden you need to contact is understanding. Maybe not?
I have written wardens respectful letters pointing out problems but I make sure first that it is a continuing issue and it's important to me. I also ALWAYS talk with my husband first and let him decide whether I should send it because it may affect how he's treated. I always sign my name. I find usually the warden will write back, saying he's forwarded the letter to a specific staff person who is in charge of that area or policy. I almost never hear back from that person but sometimes there is improvement. Depends on the issue and whether they want to do anything about it. Our son, when he was 5, wrote the warden a letter about his favorite firetruck disappearing from the visiting room. The next visit, there was a brand new firetruck there for him to play with. Maybe we all should say we're five years old when we write!! LOL! One time I wrote about a specific cop in the visiting room - and so did others. We didn't receive a reply but he was transferred. No repercussions on us or our loved ones. But it is our loved ones inside who should have the final say because they're the ones who risk taking the heat. Zelda
I agree with Zelda before writing I would make sure that your boyfriend wants you to write the letter I wrote the Warden in reference to my Boo being stabed several times and no official notification of the incident I was told by one of the officer these are grown men we not going to call you everytime there is an altercation we only call if the person dies.
I was in complete shock luckly I was able to visit on a weekly basis just to reassure me that he was okay and healing properly this happen there months ago I just recieved a letter from the warden last week telling me he got my letter and that inmate ????? is doing good and has since heal from his injuries.
